Key Private Wealth Management strategies

Wealth Management starts with financial planning but continues deeper into more complex strategies and considerations that emerge one you amass a certain level of wealth.

Once your net wealth reaches a certain level, in addition to financial planning services, wealth management services involve:

  • Advanced investment management and advice.
  • Tax planning and management
  • Advanced estate planning – important in order to preserve as much wealth as possible for your loved ones after you die.
  • Gifting strategies
  • Guidance around more complex plans, involving trust structures and companies.

The best wealth management strategies have many different facets to them. It’s about growing your wealth, but also about protecting it and utilising it in a way that is fulfilling. The strategy should look to minimise tax (now and after you die) and manage assets efficiently through diversification, tax loss harvesting and consistent rebalancing. An example of this may be when your wealth manager advises you to sell a fund that has been underperforming in order to harvest your losses to offset against a tax burden during a given year. A wealth manager can help you be strategic about when to withdraw funds and can help with devising safe income streams (annuities) in combination with market aligned income streams. Your strategy should grow with you through good times and bad, and should match up with your goals and objectives.

Hudson Wealth Managers leverage their expertise of markets and the economy, as well as their understanding of you as an individual, to craft an individualised portfolio. A good wealth manager will understand the macro and micro economic trends that may impact your portfolio at any given time. This will allow them to anticipate changes in the market and adjust your portfolio accordingly. A good wealth manager will work with other professionals (your lawyer and accountant) in order to facilitate a comprehensive and tax effective plan that aligns with your values and personal beliefs. At Hudson we believe in holistic wealth management and have been helping clients for over 30 years, manage their wealth.

FAQs for Wealth Management

Discover our most commonly asked questions relating to Wealth Management at Hudson.

What is Wealth Management?

Wealth Management is designed specifically to help high-net-worth clients continue to grow their wealth, protect their assets and reduce their financial risk. Wealth management is more than picking investments, it is like a premium service that combines all of the financial services together to meet the needs of wealthy individuals. 

What is the minimum amount for wealth management?

Some firms will offer a form of wealth management if you have around $250,000 or $500,000, but for the most part you’ll need to have $1million or more, with some brokerage firms requiring $5 million or even $10 million to get started. At Hudson, we believe that wealth is different for everyone, and what is plenty for some is not enough for others. We do not put a figure on our wealth clients, instead we work with our clients to determine when their situation requires Wealth Management. For some it’s at $250,000, for others it’s $5 million.

What is the difference between a financial planner and a wealth manager?

A financial planner primarily assists with lifestyle planning, budgeting, cashflows, saving for a new house, a new car, retirement, basically managing the finances of everyday clients who want to get ahead. A wealth manager provdes services to high net worth clients, such as capital gains planning, estate planning and risk management, wealth managers manage actual wealth. Financial planning evolves into wealth management over time.

Is a wealth manager worth it?

As your wealth grows, your financial situation becomes more complex and things like estate taxes, fees and inflation can chip away at your wealth. Having a wealth manager work with you can help you navigate these complex issues and avoid some financial pain.

How much does wealth management cost?

Different wealth managers charge clients in different ways. The most common way is to charge a percentage of the assets that the wealth manager has under management. The percentage is often reduced, the greater the asset value. As an example clients with $1million under management typically pay around 1% of assets per year, while those with $10million pay closer to 0.7%, according to an industry study.

At Hudson, we have the economies of scale to be able to offer fees of no more than 0.6% of assets managed per year, and with clients with over $1 million in investments, the fees reduce.

Fee schedules should just be the starting point, its important to consider the other services provided, such as assistance on specialised areas such as accountants, estate lawyers and insurance advice, and overall level of relationship service that will give you peace of mind. A good Wealth Manager will be aware of personal issues and will offer advice far outside the financial realm.

What age should I start working with a Wealth Manager?

Rule of thumb is when you accumulate at last $250,000 in assets, however, financial planning often evolves into wealth management and there is no better time that today to start working with a financial planner.

What are common assets that go into managing wealth?

Large cap stocks, mid-cap stocks, small-cap stocks, international securities, emerging markets, fixed income securities, money market (typically bonds), real estate investment trusts (REITs) and bricks and mortar real estate.

Buy when others are selling and sell when others are buying. Diversify your asset mix, collaborate with a wealth manager and stay on the path as much as possible, hold throughout downturns if possible and set financial and lifestyle goals, reviewed twice annually to adapt to your changing needs whilst keeping you on your financial path ahead.
